Stopped here for lunch on our way up to Lake Tahoe. We didn't realize it had been featured on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" until we sat down. Food was good - but nothing amazing. Service was good and staff was friendly.

We stopped by for brunch, and it was a really pleasant surprise. We're all vegetarians and they had a number of choices on the menu. I asked for a breakfast burrito and they gave me a vegetarian version which was really, really "grande". Shared NY style cheese cake at the end. Server was very friendly and accommodating. Service was a... More

We were hungry and the there was hardly anything open in town. We were unaware that they were featured in Dinners, Drive-ins and Dives by the Food Network until we arrived at their door. We arrived two hours before midnight on New Year's Eve. They were one hour from closing its doors to celebrate the New Year, but they treated... More

The building is really nice, the food just average, good service and nice staff. Nothing to distinguish the menu or the food.

Clean great food with portions big enough to share. Awesome burgers. Sometimes can be slow if it's too busy, but service is always great. They're shakes are soooo good!

We ventured over to Truckee while staying in nearby Squaw Valley for dinner one night. This restaurant was featured on our in room TV channel for local eateries. The food was tasty, the service prompt and the atmosphere quirky in a good way. The railroad tracks right behind the restaurant are a working railway but that only adds to the... More

We waited at least 45 minutes before being seated at Jax, and another 15 minutes to get food, but when it arrived, it was delicious. The eggs benedict was perfectly done! We were seated in the old train car section of the restaurant, which had a great retro vibe.

We wanted to try this restaurant and we finally did. The food was excellent. We have lived in NY City and NJ--where there a tons of diners. This place had all around the best food and a lot of it. Very good value for the money. The atmosphere was typical diner :) We really enjoyed ourselves and will definitely go... More

We've been there twice in the past week. The food is tasty and the prices reasonable. We arrived one day at 12 noon and it took well over 30 minutes after ordering to get our food. The 2nd time we got there at 2:30 p.m., the restaurant was maybe 60% full, and it took 50 minutes after ordering to get... More
